Dr. Sera Waters is an artist, arts writer and academic living upon Kaurna Country, South Australia. Her research, writing, embroideries, and hand-crafted sculptures dwell within historical gaps to examine settler colonial home-making patterns and repetitive practices, coalescing around key research concepts of ‘repetitive crafting’ and ‘genealogical ghostscapes’. Waters holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (honours) from the South Australian School of Art, University of South Australia (1997-2000), has a Master of Arts (Art History) from University of Adelaide (2004-06), and was awarded her PhD from the University of South Australia in 2019. She has recently co-written the 2018 SALA monograph on Clare Belfrage, with Emeritus Professor Kay Lawrence. As well as teaching at Adelaide Central School of Art since 2009, Waters exhibits across Australia and is represented by Hugo Michell Gallery.
